Maddi "I Paint Music" Art Exhibition at G Hotel Gurney Penang

It was certainly good to be back to G Hotel Gurney for another round of art exhibition launch. Each artist has different style of masterpieces and so unique in their very own way. For this time around, Madeline Ekeblad, an internationally recognized artist, who is fondly known as Maddi showcases her beautiful paintings at G Art Gallery with her art exhibition "I Paint Music".

This is her very first solo art exhibition in Malaysia. Her artworks mainly consist of elements such as piano, guitars and cellos. You will also spot the classic "girl in the red dress" which Maddi is well known for.

So join me as I recap on what took place during the recent launching of Maddi's "I Paint Music" art exhibition.

The launch event kick started off with all the warm welcome from G Hotel and the artist herself, Maddi herself.

Mr. Michael Hanratty, General Manager of G Hotel giving his opening speech.

Maddi listens to Jazz or the Classics when working with enamels, acrylics or inks on canvas. “I hear music everywhere. Music and Dance are my greatest loves and this is portrayed in my energetic style of ‘freeform’ painting. I am a fourth generation Artist, and growing up in an artistic family allowed for creative thinking and experimentation. My mother is an artist painter/sculptor, my father was a ballroom dancer, my grandmother was a designer milliner and my great grandfather was an artist/engraver for the British Royal Mint,” says Maddi.

Maddi, with her vibrant character, certainly brings so much laughter. 

Maddi was spotted showing some of the music sheets which dated many many years ago. You will be able to spot some of the art work that contains music sheets in it too.

Time to enjoy and appreciate the amazing artworks by Maddi. You will realized the strong element of red, black, and music.

Maddi has made Malaysia, Penang in particular, her home. Back in her hometown of Brisbane, she is a Celebrity Brand Ambassador for the Tourism Redland City Council and she has published over 6 motivational books. She was also awarded the title of “Cultural Champion” from Arts Queensland for her dedication to the arts. She has also set foot in Hong Kong, where she has had over 10 exhibitions with her art bought by several international collectors from Australia, France, England, India, USA, Europe, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Artist, Author, Art Philosopher, Workshop Tutor, Art Judge, Curator, Teacher, Director of OMSA are just a few of her accomplishments.

The "I Paint Music" art exhibition by Maddi is now on-going until 31 January 2018. Her artworks are up for sale. By looking at the stickers bearing the world SOLD, you certainly know how much people love her paintings.

Don't forget to pop over G Art Gallery to be mesmerized by all the beautiful artwork and do approach the reception should you be interested to make a purchase.
